Choe et al showed that rates of antibody positivity was still high after 8 months, however, neutralizing activity was only detected in 53.4% of asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic participants after 8 months of infection,
Crawford et al: Neutralizing antibody titres (and total antibodies) declined an average of about 4-fold from 1 to 4 months after symptom onset.
